May 25, 2006
LOS ANGELES -- The U.S. Women's National Volleyball Team, which features former USC players Katie Olsovsky and Nicole Davis, will host Poland in an exhibition match Friday in Rosemont, Ill., to kick off its 2006 schedule. The United States is currently ranked fifth in the world while Poland enters the exhibition with a No. 9 ranking.
Team USA faces a challenging schedule with the Pan American Cup in Puerto Rico in June, the World Grand Prix in Asia and Italy in August and September and culminating with the World Championships in Japan in October and November.
Olsovsky, who plays as a middle blocker, and Davis, who plays at libero, were members of USC's back-to-back national championships in 2002 and 2003.
